    That's Obama's plan. My plan doesn't require anyone to die.

    Raise taxes on the young. They won't realize what's happening to them. They're like dumb beasts.

    =Kandahar;1059195632]This is a perfect example of the infantile views I'm talking about...the idea that you can get something for nothing. If cutting taxes actually increased revenue, then why would conservatives even care about spending? We could just cut taxes to pay for all the spending we wanted.
    With a 14 trillion dollar debt you ask that question? In the real world you have to pay for your debt. I realize that liberals don't live in the real world though. Tax cuts will increase revenue needed to pay off the debt.

    Would you care to explain how you imagine a stimulus INCREASES unemployment?
    Very simple, there was no stimulus for shovel ready jobs because there were no shovel ready jobs. The stimulus bailed out unions and other Democrat contituent groups and allowed states to not make the tough choices. You bought the rhetoric that the stimulus would keep unemployment from exceeding 8%. How did that work out for us?

    Regardless of whose money it is, the fact is that the tax cuts are in place and it's a lot of money that the government does not have, that it otherwise would. Now the question is whether we're going to make good on our obligations that result from such policies, or whether we're going to default on them.
    Regardless of whose money it is? Unfortunately that is the liberal line, it certainly isn't the government's. What do you do when you have less money? My bet is you cut spending yet don't hold the govt. to the same standards. You buy that every dime the govt. says it needs is what it really needs. Nothing could be further from the truth as evidenced by the massive growth in size of govt. the last two years. Until the govt. gets control of its finances and comes up with the plan to cut spending, the hell with the debt ceiling, don't raise it. We have 400 billion dollars to go before that is necessary so you cut spending then address the debt ceiling.

    Anyone that wants to attack you. Maybe we could Ask Africa for the 100 billion Bush spent on Africa to eradicate AIDS. The first country anyone goes to when they need help is the U.S. Maybe in South Africa you missed the news that Radical Islam wants even you dead.

    Where? From the Canadians themselves. In fact Canada can't defend it's territory above the Arctic Circle. That's where America comes in. The Canadians will pay big money to preserve access to its far north and the continental shelf that slopes into the Arctic Ocean.
